CD Reviews

Unusually great
Sean M. Kelly | Portland, Oregon United States | 09/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've heard about King Django ever since a buddy of mine spun a 12" of "Seventh Day" at a toaster's gig a year or so ago. I was transfixed by the beautiful coming together of ska, hard dub, and klezmer music.It sounds almost cheesy to say that music can truly unite cultures and peoples, but its so true. That night, people of all creeds, cultures, races, and socio-ethnic backgrounds all grooved as one to King Django. It didn't matter that the lyrics were mostly in Hebrew. It was the tight grooves that united everyone.I have since turned on at least 25 people I know to this lp, and they in turn have spread it around. Its klezmer, its hard dub, its dancehall, some ska..but most of all, its great!"
